Oksana’s Paralympic Journey

Oksana was born with a number of physical impairments due to radiation exposure from the Chernobyl incident and spent the first years of her life in an orphanage. When she was seven, she met her adoptive mother and moved to the United States. Ultimately, her impairments caused both of her legs to be amputated above the knee. After this trying time, she was introduced to adaptive rowing and her passion for competing was ignited.

I want to help leave a little piece of what is possible for the next kid who isn’t sure about what they are capable of doing.
Road to Tokyo
After competing throughout high school and setting a world record in 2010, she joined Team USA for the Paralympic Games London 2012, and she’s been with them ever since. She even competes at the Paralympic Winter Games as a Nordic skier. Today, Oksana is excited for Tokyo, not only for the competition, but for the platform it gives her to inspire the next generation. Growing up, she never really had someone to look up to as she underwent her amputations. Oksana wants to encourage the girls and boys who are experiencing the same difficulties she went through and show them anything is possible.
